People bitch all the time about being called a bitch; however only a bitch can be allowed to bitch about being called a bitch, in a bitchy manner. Life`s a bitch, and so are these people; so stop bitchin`.
`lol...every generation is going to see the next generation as weaker.
You guys from before the 1980`s are calling us lame when people from the 1950`s think you`re f*cking pussies.`
The most truth ever, right there people.
OK I FOUND THIS http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/buckycovi...
A DIFFERENT WORLD BY BUCKY COVINGTON
ANYWAY THERE WAS THIS COUNTRY SONG PLAYING ON THE RADIO AND THE LYRICS WERE VERY SIMILAR TO THOSE OF THIS POSTING
ANYBODY KNOW THAT SONG? LET ME GOOGLE IT...
I was born in 74 we did have Atari 2600 and Commodore 64. So gaming and computers was around but hard to find.
Each generation thinks this of the previous. I remember the elders preaching the same bullpoo about us when we were through oranges at cars.
A.D. Actuall is Latin for Anno Domini. Year after the Accepted Date of Christ`s birth.
This country is screwed. I mean, if the time of Christ is actually referred to caveman days; no wonder we`re at war with the Middle East.
:Beatsdown King Ducky for being such an idiot with one of his "clubs":
Apparently, you`re as smart as a caveman.
I don`t recall Christ ever using wooden clubs or being a caveman. Sure, he was a child back then; but he was THAT far, according to your context, into the past.
damn 20`s to 70`s kids were so spoilt with their radio`s, skateboards and excessive amounts of marijuana
Is he trying to say that we younger generations are overprotected? I wouldn`t call protection from birth defects OVERprotection...
I also remember hearing things like "We grew up with a radio and no TV!, We didn`t have all of your new-fangled toys, We didn`t have air conditioning!, Well brought-up girls never did... (it was a BIG long list of what nice girls would NEVER do)
So, every generation does this to the younger ones, relax!
great, nice one oldies.*adds plagiarism to list right next to pedophilia*
no wonder were turning into a bubble society, stupid hippie pedophiles wrecked out way of life
thanks a lot retards
the 90`s kids I believe were more sheltered from society
KIDS ARE RAISED TO BE DOUCHEBAGS. By all means, blame the parents. My parents are so overprotective it`s sick. I can`t even walk home anymore because they worry thats it`s too far and some other BS excuses. Honestly, If I could go through these experiences I would. dratING OVERPROTECTIVE PARENTS. when I`m a parent, I swear, I`m going to make my kid hardened. :)
Also, Who do you think is bringing up our generation to not leave the house w/o a phone, to use all the safety precautions, and buying them game systems which they play all day? the children who grew up in the 60`s, 60`s, and (maybe) 80`s!!!
The only reason less kids are outside during the day is one of a few reasons; 1) Kidnappers. I have quite a few living in my neighborhood, and I`m sure other places do too.2) No adult supervision. Parents don`t like kids running in the middle of the street with a huge semi behind them.
I dunno. The tone of this thing sucks. I grew up fine and I was born in the 90s.
# First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.# They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn`t get tested for diabetes.# Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.# We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.
The difference nowadays is we gots the TV. And the TV says theres strangers in dark corners drooling and jackin it just waiting to jump some innocent bystander.
Theres a reason why most of us havent been jumped by this fellow. Because he largely doesnt exist. Im not saying dont be careful, just dont be naive.
Looks like they didn`t have any grammar teachers either.
Take a look at the dolls that they are marketing to 5-12 year old girls right now.
BRATZ....(might as well call them Slutz)
If you let your little girl play with these, that`s just irresponsible..period. Well, unless you want her dressing and pretending to be like this now??!
Think 60s and 70s were tough? Try 1890 birthday areas, or 1910-ish. You would be in a war son. They made plenty of cool stuff at those points too ya know, maybe that would be better. Oh and tell me about, well you know, everything before that cuz I`m sure they had it easy to and only did things like create the foundations of western civilisation more than 2000 years before you were born (among other things)
Literally one of the most stupid, pointless reads I`ve had in a long time.
You guys from before the 1980`s are calling us lame when people from the 1950`s think you`re f*cking pussies.
loland i agree with King Duckey and NotAllowed
Yeah, I`m like that too, and I do think growing up on the countryside helped A lot. And I`m not a hillbillie or redneck (our own kind of rednecks) for growing up near farmanimals and all. Hell, I even speak four languages ^^
I still had a dirt bike when I was kid, wrecked plenty, and built forts outside with my brother in the woods. I use to buy a bag of candy for 25 cents at a store with my mom and I collected old baseball cards. We also played outside without any worries and I use to stay out till after dark. It really depends on where you were brought up..maybe this guy just thinks things were a lot different...but really the mid to late `90s are where most of the changes came. I do think a lot of kids today are overprotected..hopefully my daughter can run around freely.
I saw a program the other day about a woman who owns a fashion boutique. She was selling novelty t shirts for kids and one of them said `all daddy really wanted was a blow job`; THIS is the society we have created for ourselves in the west and i dont see a hell of alot to be proud of. The ppl we routinely reward and elevate have no moral grounding or virtues. We teach our kids that the world is full of perverts and it is, but the perverts are us; the majority, who have created an over sexualised, lazy society of entitlement.We worship money and aesthetics and we wonder why our kids grow up to be depressed, lost and demoralised.
And their tell me that their mothers drank andsmoked in the same page.
And even though the author`s generalizing to make a point, he/she`s pretty well dead on for the most part.
By the way, this is way old. I saw this in an e-mail like 5 or six years ago.
IDEA IDEA:Would it not be cool to shut down ALL electrics for a week or so. (and I know this cannot be done due to millions of reasons but imageine)
I have girlfriends who are moms, and they`ve been so brainwashed with "sunscreen this" and "kidnappers that" and "air purifiers the other" that I`m surprised they don`t have their kids in plastic bubbles.
Somewhere between "their" generation and "our" generation, a culture of fear and self involvement took over.
Sweetie! "Thay" ??
Oh well, to your point, I think that the author was making no bones about the fact the he/she was criticizing his/her generation, now that they`ve become parents.
Everything is regulated, controlled and you are under surveillance 24/7. If you have the least bit of resistence left in you see what your voice is worth to "them". Seen demonstrations around the G8 meeting? 1 policeman for 1 demonstrator ... Sheepdogs and sheep. Intimidation of democracy at it`s best.
Then all that faded one day, about the time Doug and Rugrats went off TV :(
Ah screw it; You know what I mean. If you don`t, then you probably haven`t been raised right.
Attention is good and all, but get pamered too much, and you`ll become soft. In sense of "skin"; I`m practically exo-skeletal. Living a life of hell has hardened me to the extent that... Chuck Norris would get worried.
Believe me, I was raised well. I was allowed to take risks. That`s good parenting there.
Todays generations, as well as half of my generation (80s born and 90s raised) are too sheltered and as dumb and easily manipulated as sheep. That`s all that this country`s been being turned into now. Sheep. Well, I may be one of them, but I`m a black sheep. Raised in a similar environment, but I am not one of them. (Psychologically-wise)
Oh, and try this on for size; because, like the risk takers before my days, I didn`t depend on low-fat, or tofu-based products, or safety equipment, or sterilization as much as everyone else. Guess what; I suffer no allergies, have an adamant immunity system (all but the common cold, seeing as that`s a check-up illness anyway), and I can handle just about anything you toss my way with my head held high.
Yeah; this country has turned to crap.
It`s a complete lack of empathy. People treat their kids like they`re the center of the universe and they grow up believing it.
Very many? You`ve only got two...
My gramps actually had his eye poked out with a stick when he was a kid.
That warnin` is for serial, folks!
You leave your medicine bottles open and alow your kid to poison himself. Fine, fewer kids for you, humanity`s genepool is better.
Drop your kid on the ground? We always need more artistic people.
Yea...all those would just make the kid more retarded then stronger haha ..
